Fox News host Mark Levin took time out of his recent radio broadcast encourage President Donald Trump to continue to push back against the impeachment inquiry by way of demanding that the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, be forced to testify during the hearing.
The “Life, Liberty & Levin” host told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that Schiff is helping Democrats attack Trump with no precedent.
“The law is on the president’s side, the facts are on the president’s side,” Levin said of Trump’s conversation with Ukraine that have become the subject of the impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives Fox News reported.
“What they’re attacking is the transition of power. They have never supported the transition of power from the Obama administration to a Trump administration.”
According to Levin, Trump should appoint “whomever he wants” to foreign policy positions.
“The president sets foreign policy,” Levin said. “It doesn’t make a damn’s worth of difference if you don’t agree with it. I don’t care what a former Obama ambassador [to] Ukraine thinks.”
The Fox host called on the whistleblower along with Schiff himself to testify:
“The whole house of cards will collapse and the American people will see [that] this was an outrageous, unconscionable attack by them on the president,” Levin claimed.
“Mr. President — stay strong — this’ll collapse, eventually.”
Levin hasn’t hid his support for Trump and he spoke out, saying that he would likely continue to participate in political rallies and that he did not violate Fox’s rules by doing so.
Levin said “nobody on this planet is going to stop me. No corporation, no left-wing group, … nobody,” Media Matters reported.
The issue became a hot topic prior to the November 2018 election when several of the network’s hosts, including Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, appeared at President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies.
Thanks to their appearances and remarks, the network released a statement, saying that they do not condone the participation of their talent in political rallies.
“FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work.”
